Hello and Welcome to justanswer..

My name is MIKE...

Can you please tell me the mileage on the car ?

Also - what is its service history like ? and when was it serviced last / time - mileage wise?

Exactly what has been done / checked so far for this issue?

Does the whine increase / decrease with the speed of the engine revs or the speed of the car in motion?
